They who aspire to reform the morals of others lose their time and their pains, by not preaching by example, in correcting themselves first. ~ St. Ignatius of Loyola
Today, I begin the new day anew in at least one way – I will go out to preach to the spirit of oppression – but by example. For every hurt~arrow that finds its mark in me, I will try to preach by example the healing opposite.
For cruelty, compassion
For self-seeking, generosity
For pride, humility
I’d likely fall at the lowest hurdle but what is faith if not to get off the ground and try once more!
